Hello, hello. I can’t believe it’s almost a year since my last blog post. A lot has happened since then. I’m still adjusting to the significant changes in my life. Some things are the same. I’m writing, dreaming, living and trying to be the best human I can be. I don’t always succeed, but I’m going to keep working at it.
One thing I’ve always struggled with is change. And the year MMXIX seems determined to keep dishing it out. My first baby will be going off to university. I’m having a hard time with this. Baby number two will be going into his last year of high school while baby number three aka ‘I’m a man’ will be going into his last year of elementary school. I remember prepping for baby number one’s grand arrival.
No matter what I do, I can’t get over or around the upcoming changes. The recurring memo I get is that I’m meant to get through it all by being still. The big question I wrestle with is how do I survive this tumultuous life by being still? As I think about the right answer for me, I also know I haven’t experienced lasting peace by spinning. It’s exhausting. I’m exhausted.
So, this is what I’m going to be doing for a while. I’m going to be doing some active listening. I’ll be listening to the still, small, voice and believing that faith in a loving Father will serve as a buffer and a guide. I need it. Perhaps you do too.
